Rice game quotes
HEAD COACH MACK BROWN
We dominated both lines of scrimmage from the outset and then that was the difference in the ball game they couldnít run the ball, we ran the ball pretty much at will early against a team that has played well for two weeks. Those guys had a chance to win in the 4th quarter out at UCLA and Todd is doing a super job with them.
On the number of penalties: Have to address the penalties well look at the film and see what we thought of that many penalties and also we canít fumble the ball at the 1 yard line. Other than that we felt like the game was really what we needed to get back on track. All the guys are excited about starting big 12 play next week.

HEAD COACH TODD GRAHAM
Texas is a very, very, good football team and you absolutely can not come out and not be ready to play.
They are a very physical football team. We had a very difficult time tackling their guys. They are by far the best team weíve played to this point, but this is also the worst game weíve played to this point.
Punt return for a touchdown, fumble return for a touchdown right after a turnover...these are things you just canít have against a great team. We knew what kind of battle we were going to have. Their offensive line is as good as there is in the country.
QB JOEL ARMSTRONG
Everybody has to stick together and prepare better in practice. Being able to score 7 points at the end may not mean much to some people, but it meant a lot to us as we keep fighting til the end.
WR JARETT DILLARD
DB CHAD PRICE
Texas did a good job blocking tonight and if we canít stop the run, then we will not have a chance to win.
When it comes to the passing game we can hang with anybody.
